Bottle @ Himmeriget, Copenhagen 20170103. Roasted malty with chocolate, vanilla and coffee, sweet, medium to full body with an oily texture. The finish is roasted and sweet with some chili notes. beer_queue (140) - California, USA - JAN 14, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2017 Pours dark, dark brown and of course black in glass. Head is thin, brown, & dense. Rich, dessert-like aromas full of chocolates & vanilla with hints of coffee trailing behind. Arrives with big hits of chocolate & coffee as you’d expect from nose. Some more coffee notes lasting thru the middle. Subtle hot, smoky peppers & booze at the end. Never got much vanilla but maybe some linger in the finish. Full body & low carb. Overall it provides balanced sweetness with heat—so delicious! humlelala (1375) - DENMARK - JAN 13, 2017
(On tap @ Bootleggers) Poured into stemmed tulip at cellar temperature reveals a pitch black body with one finger of mostly tan head. Good retention and beautiful lace. Aroma features cocoa beans at the forefront but seemingly integrated with roasted malt without it getting perfumy or synthetic. There might actually be a hint of chili pepper / paprika powder note in the back of the aroma to balance it out somewhat. As the beer warms the vanilla becomes more prevalent, which I am less keen on but I suppose it reveals a level of depth in the composition that merits respect. Creamy texture, full body soft carbonation and a very gratifying, lingering, sweet finish that never gets cloying yet masks the high abv well. A further nuance on the finish is that it leaves a subtle tingling / warming sensation on your lips if they are ever so slightly parched. Evidence of the chili presence I suppose. Flavour holds plenty of aroma notes and a dominant sweetness, which is balanced really well in the sense that it doesn’t get cloying yet masks the high alcohol dangerously well. Complexity is decent for the abv although it seems the emphasis here is on alcohol integration meaning it does not reach Belgian levels of dark fruit backdrop complexity. It does one thing and it does it sublimely well without leaving you wanting to discover or delve on further layers if complexity (apart from the increasing prevalance of vanilla aroma notes as it warms). A very well executed beer, which lives up to the expectations raised by a 13% ABV Imperial Stout without puzzling you further. Gaultier (1755) - SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2017

Went to this place with the intention of trying and reviewing two barrel-aged stouts. This was after eight 4-oz. tasters each at Craft Haus and Bad Beat. Decided on Even More Jesus and Bomb! over a Russian Imperial Stout from Joseph James. Was looking forward to finally trying this one. Would be disappointed with anything below a 4.30.
Poured a pitch black color with two fingers of frothy tan head. Excellent spiderweb lacing. Good retention. (Sight - 4.25)
Smelled chile peppers, dark roasted chocolate, dark cocoa, vanilla and some hints of coffee. (Smell - 4.25)
Tasted milk chocolate, chocolate syrup, cocoa, vanilla, caramel, spices coming in late and brownie batter. (Taste - 4.50)
Full body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, slightly spicy warming finish. (Feel - 4.75)
This was about as good as I could have hoped. Glad I got to try it and can’t wait to have it again. (Overall - 4.50)

Small bottle from Elizabeth Station. Pours an almost black with a dark beige head. Aroma is coffee, some vanilla and cocoa, corn flakes. Taste is sweet, pretty the same character, spicy. Good stuff if you like spices in the beer, but I am not a fan. Tide (3895) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 18, 2016
